    Description

    Vintage Mickey Mantle & Roger Maris Signed Baseball. The M&M boys clock in on this "Wilson" brand baseball in the darkest ink known to man. While Mantle and Maris together on a baseball has been a hot commodity in the collecting industry since their historic 1961 season, the vast majority we've seen date from the 1970's and 1980's, well after the home run chase that linked these two forever in baseball lore. We're uncertain of the exact vintage of this sphere, but it's clearly quite early, almost surely dating from the pair's playing days. Mickey occupies the sweet spot, with Roger on the side panel. Another panel holds a bold block lettered inscription in an unknown hand, reading "For Jimmy Tuggle." A few tiny dots of paint appear over the Maris signature, but the overall effect of the monumentally bold black ink cannot be hindered by such a minor consideration. LOA from Steve Grad & Zach Rullo/ PSA DNA.
